Tour Overview

 

The Sundarban Mangrove Forest, located in the southwestern region of Bangladesh, is the world's largest mangrove forest. This incredibly diverse forest has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The forest is unique because of its uprising root, muddy ground, stunning natural views, and the fact that it is home to the world's largest population of Bengal tigers, rare threatened estuarine crocodiles, and thousands of islanders. The rich green vegetation provides your eyes a refreshing sensation, and it's a bird lover's paradise. Sundarbans is home to over 270 different bird species, attracting bird lovers from all over the world. In the Bangladeshi side of the Sundarbans, the only way to get there is via boat. Tourists can travel on a day excursion, but the longest journey, which includes Kotka and the Kochikhali wildlife sanctuary area, is the most popular.

Benefits of Traveling in Small Groups Sundarbans Tour 

Starting our journey in Mongla and boarding the Sundarbans cruising boat, you will spend your two nights and three days on the water with your group only aboard the Sundarbans cruising boat. Small boats can travel close to the canals or riverbanks, allowing you to get a close look at the forest. Private excursions can offer more boat cruises, woodland walks, and adventures than group large tours, and they are more engaging and fun. Due to the covid outbreak, we recommend that you go with your own group so that you can enjoy and rest at your own time.
